Program Description

Recent workforce statistics estimate that approximately 36% of Americans are employed in the “Gig Economy”. Historically, credit unions have provided lending services to wage earners that are associated with a specific employer group. The roots of credit union membership are tied to traditional employers. 

The workforce of today looks dramatically different than when your credit union was founded. Across generational boundaries, borrowers are straddled with student loan debt. 

In this educational session, Don Arkell will cover the following topics and more to help you navigate the lending landscape of the “Gig Economy”:

  • Defining the Gig Economy
  • Traditional Lending Metric Shortcomings
  • Income Verification Traps
  • Alternative Lending Data
  • The Sharing Economy is Putting Your Auto Portfolio at Risk
  • Reliance on Independent Records

Program Length: 90 Minutes
